The American singer-songwriter’s music career to his iconic dance moves and his innovative moonwalk which many still try to imitate and his ever-changing appearance over the years, Jackson’s life has always been surrounded by media and controversies.
The gentle, high-pitched speaking voice of Michael Jackson was one of the reasons his fans used to like him. Many people who met and knew the I Want You Back singer personally have stated that it was not his real voice and that he sounds very different off-camera. The singer’s music director revealed that the singer’s soft voice was not how he spoke in private.
Samm Brown III, Jackson’s music director told VH1 in 2005,
“I hope he doesn’t get angry at me for telling you this, but that’s his public persona. I remember a time I called him up and he answered the phone and I didn’t know I was talking to him because he was talking in his normal voice, which is pretty deep.”
Oprah Winfrey interviewed Michael Jackson’s wife Lisa Marie Presley in 2005, and asked her about her marriage to Jackson. Winfrey first shared her first meeting with the singer off-camera she said he was talking with her in his normal voice.
